This case study is restricted to a company in the health area that supplies local and international public and private organizations. Its master product is surgical sutures for the synthesis of tissues and ligation of blood vessels. The company is consolidated as finally for health professionals. Its value-added is to offer its products through demonstrations in the surgery room. For this purpose, sales representatives are present on-site, in the operating room, an average of three times per week, where they demonstrate the use of all their products, including sutures. In addition to this practice, the company has within its facilities a “hands-on room,” allowing health professionals to attend and use its facilities to carry out tests on all their products and verify the quality of the manufactured products. In this work, we implement the material requirements planning (MRP) to improve productivity in a company dedicated to the manufacturing of supplies for the health area. The use of material requirements planning improved the estimation of the number of raw materials required and optimized the scheduled deliveries within the company.
